Hair Transplantation Bellevue & Seattle

Hair transplantation takes hair from another part of your body and implants it in the area that is desired.

The most common way requires the removal of a strip of hair in the back of your scalp and using it to thicken the front of the hair. The strip is broken up into slivers which are broken into follicular units. The group of single hairs can range up to five hairs. Each of these units are inserted into different areas of your scalp to thicken and reconstruct your hair.

How long does it take for hair to grow?

It takes anywhere from 3 to 6 months to grow. You will not want to do another grafting for another 6 months to year. This is in order to know what areas have hair and what areas don't to really know exactly where to graft and not. Below is a pictorial of a hair grafting session:

A week later you can see the areas that we have placed the grafts and the crusting redness present. Over the next 1-2 months these hairs may fall out but don't be worried. This is normal and it will take 3-6 months for the hairs to grow back:

Two Weeks later, the areas have improved in that there are no crusts nor significant redness. The hairs are present but they may start to fall out. Again, this is normal.

Four months later, you can see the hair has started to thicken up and you now are seeing more robust hair growth and the area is thickened and hiding the scalp much better:

“I just wanted to leave a note and say that my procedure with Dr. Young approximately 6 years ago took years off my face. He did an excellent job and I am still enjoying the results. It was very much worth the downtime. I look exactly like myself, just younger. Thanks, again!”


— C.J., 40’s caucasian female from North Lynnwood, WA

“He gave me my confidence back that I thought I would never get back. I can now look in the mirror and actually love what I see and not have to deal with pitted scars in my face. If you or anyone you know who thinks they have to just live with these scars, don't!”


— Ator A., 20’s Eastern Indian from Ontario, Canada

“My procedure went great and I left the office with no concerns and all of my questions answered. I have never felt so good about myself and my appearance. I have you to thank for that Dr. Young. My new nose is perfect, I cannot thank you enough for this new look on life.”
